Marshal describes surrender in Chicago killing

Posted: Updated:
(AP) -

A deputy U.S. marshal says the surrender of a Northwestern University professor wanted in a Chicago homicide came after fast-paced negotiations through an attorney that led to the fugitive turning himself in at the federal courthouse in Oakland, California.

Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal Frank Conroy tells The Associated Press the telephone negotiations began late Friday afternoon and by evening Wyndham Lathem arrived by car at the courthouse.

Conroy says no guns were drawn but Lathem was ordered to carefully step out of the car and he was taken into custody in a courtyard area between the federal complex's two buildings.

Conroy said Saturday that Lathem stated he would not answer questions on the advice of a lawyer, and no questions were asked.

A second fugitive in the case, Andrew Warren, surrendered separately around the same time after walking into a San Francisco police station.

Conroy says he was not involved in Warren's surrender and did not know how it unfolded.
